Within Exquisite Threading's spacious and modern surrounds, an experienced team of eyebrow shapers pays respect to the ancient depilatory artform of India and the Middle and Far East. Patrons seeking a refined look can recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers lasso their loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing, and because it doesn't tug at skin, it can help prevent eyes from unraveling down to loose yarn. A second treatment after three–four weeks keeps disciplined forethreads in line and stubble-free for another three-quarters of a lunar cycle.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic’s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Dermalogica bottles line the walls of Hair Central. They're pulled down by licensed barbers and cosmetologists who work with guests to create hairstyles that suit facial features. In addition to hair services, the staff also performs custom facials, as well as nail services with OPI polishes.
Against vivid, sky-blue walls that evoke memories of beachside relaxation, certified masters and ambassadors of Smart Tanning stand ready to bronze pale human skin with top-of-the-line equipment. The facility caters to customers' individual needs with warmed Mystic HD booths and the latest UV equipment, including Soltron's high-pressure Shark bed, complete with cozy mattress, or Ergoline's Sundash, a standup booth that allows patrons to tan while practicing marching-band routines.
The stylists at Hair Fiddlers demonstrate a passion for hair not only by listening to clients closely and trying to make them leave with smiles, but also by continuing education and attending hair shows and private classes. Though she’s been hard at work since 1993, one of the stylists, Sandy, continues to sharpen her skills, learning both new techniques and new trends. Inside the intimate boutique, the team applies their knowledge with Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, as well as formal services including wedding styling and coloring. They also perform glossing treatments that create bright shininess in case all your light bulbs burn out and you’d rather just wear a lampshade around the house.
At MJ's Salon & Spa, seven beauty specialists serve up hair services and relaxing massages. Stylist and aesthetician Autumn dabbles in cuts and color as well as facials and waxing. Massage therapist Cherie, on the other hand, specializes in multiple massage modalities, including trigger point, Swedish, and deep tissue. Each specialist works independently, and clients can book their appointments online.
Natalie's nail experience spans two decades and countless fingers and toes. Fiberglass nails, Shellac manicures, and spa pedicures are her specialties. Extra pampering includes paraffin wax dips and the application of temporary tips. OPI gel colors are available as well, and coming in 2014, she'll complement nail services with facials, body treatments, waxing, and makeup services.
